Job Loss in the U.S.: the movie

Here's an interesting animation of job creation and job loss in the U.S. from the period of 2004 to the present. (Sorry, I wasn't able to figure out how to post the item itself in the blog post. Don't email me or comment with the solution.) The animation was created by TIP Strategies. A couple of things to note:
  1. Note the effect of Hurricane Katrina in late 2005.
  2. Note how quickly the number of lost jobs balloons in late 2008.
  3. Note how relatively unaffected the mid-west is by the crisis.
